    Lots of clad and pegs from the Boy Scout Camp

    Friday I got a chance to go back to the scout camp. It was overcast and it showered some, but I did ok. I ended up with 174 coins farce value $11.87, 62 large tent pegs, an assortment of other miscellaneous finds. Of course at a scout camp you always dig chunks of melted aluminum that vary in the signal you get, but they usually sound like a coin or a ring. I really wish people would not put foil from their “tin foil dinner” or aluminum cans in the fire. When the ashes from the fire build up they get spread around in the woods and if you are cleaning up and digging all the promising targets you end up with a pocket full of the aluminum nuggets. Just one of those annoying things like tabs and can slaw.

    The finds pictured below include aluminum rope tensioners, 2 Webelos slides and an older cub slide, a LIVE 44 magnum shell, the top part of a cub Catholic religious reward, a token, assorted sinkers, and the top part of an aluminum ring with PEACE on it.

    Another good day at camp. Nothing super special, but lots of clad and some interesting finds. Thanks for looking and may your coil lead you to good things.

    The brass slides are very nice. The sinkers are old and a cool find too. Congrats on not letting some trash get in the way. Nerves of steel.

    Those are some nice finds. Boy Scout camps almost always produce those neckerchief slides, and they are fun to find.

    Thanks folks. The camp also likes getting their tent pegs back. Since 2013 I have returned over 8,200 large pegs for reuse.

    Really nice scouting artifacts, I am so surprised and a little dissapointed I haven't found a slide yet! I have a silver scout ring, but that's it. Very choice finds. Congrats & HH

    Keep looking there is one out there for you somewhere. Scout camps are almost a sure thing, but I have found them in parks, yards and at churches as well (if the scout meet at or are sponsored by the church your odds go up).

    Thanks for the nice comments and keep swingin.
